INTRODUCTION AND ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS 



The Obituaries listed within does not include all deaths in the Kern River Valley, 
only those published in the 'Kern Valley Sun' newspaper The first year available 
and copied was 1969 and this is a continuing project. 



The gathering of Obituaries in book form was compiled throught the efforts of the 
Clan Diggers Genealogical Society of the Kern River Valley, with the permission 
of the publishers of the TCern Valley Sun' newspaper We would like to express 
our appreciation to these publishers for their cooperation, without which we could 
never have started this project. 



It is our hope that this gathering of Obituaries will simplify the search for 
information on the relatives or friends that have gone before us and will further the 
interest in Genealogy. 



The SURNAME INDEX includes only the name of the person deceased and does 
not include other persons that may be mentioned in the obituaries.
